Without doubt this is a must have accessory that really elevates the look of the car so that it is classy without being overstated. I was really surprised that it did not come as standard on the Niseko limited edition that I purchased.
Fitting is relatively straight forward with easy to follow step-by-step diagrammatic instructions. It took me about 30 mins to fit taking my time to ensure that I achieved the best fit to the aperture. Although the filler lid comes with a rubber seal, try as I might I could not get it to form a perfect seal around the perimeter as the movement tolerances are small. This being said the finish is fabulous and it looks the business. I would suggest that you will need a socket set with an extension piece as the locating bolts are located approx 50mm behind the filler lid when open and positioning the bolts is the most fiddly bit of the fitting process.
Although a little expensive and very indulgent, the satisfaction level is rewarded and consequently justifies the purchase, hence 5 stars. If you are going to purchase an accessory I would put this top of the list.
Great service from MX5Parts who provided a swift delivery service and email updates informing me of progress on the order.
Go on, you know that you deserve it
